About us

Creatives in mind logo

Are you a creative professional whose thoughts, feelings or behaviours are holding you back from living the life you want to live? Our specialised CBT practice for Creatives professionals is here to help. 

The creative industry can be exciting, soul enhancing, fulfilling and fun. It can also involve working long hours, tight deadlines, freelance work and shift work, which all present their challenges.


We know that as creatives our mind gives us many gifts including thinking of lots of different possibilities, imagination, curiosity and our mind working at a fast pace. This often drives our greatest work but if these gifts are hijacked by negative thoughts they can create great distress. Imagine being able to acknowledge distressing thoughts and feelings whilst having a choice in how they impact your behaviour.

Imagine working in a workplace in which people feel safe to express ideas without criticism, allowing people to debate creative ideas and work together to develop their best work. We can help support you to develop this in the workplace.

We work with individuals, productions and workplaces to enhance wellbeing across all creative industries including Film, TV, Music, Radio, Fashion, Computer Games and the Performing Arts to enable people to do their best work.

CBT Therapist for creative industry

Hello and welcome to Creatives in Mind. I am Kirstie, founder of Creatives in Mind. I am a BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and EMDR Therapist with over 10 years experience working in the mental health industry, both in the NHS and private sector. I have a BSc in Psychology and many Post Graduate Certificates and Diplomas in different Therapies, mostly CBT related. Having clients, friends and family who work in the creative industry gives me a unique understanding of both the rewards and challenges the creative industry presents.

I founded creatives in mind because I have a strong passion to enhance peoples wellbeing in the creative industry. Art is so powerful in being able to change emotions and promote freedom of expression. I aim to support people and organisations to create their best work, so creatives can continue to be curious and open our minds to new ideas.
